Update from FLOOD last night...

God is on the move.  Last night we continued through our series in James called, "In Your Face," looking at the topic of asking for wisdom during times of suffering.  It was a powerful evening of praise, worship, and studying God's word.  And the best part: we saw 6 people surrender their lives to Jesus.  THAT NEVER GETS OLD!!!

Next week at FLOOD we have baptisms.  We don't have anyone signed up for them yet, but we are trusting that Jesus will work in the hearts and lives of people who come to FLOOD so that they get baptized.  Last month the same thing happened and we saw seven high school students profess their faith through baptism.  I would love to see you come out and join us for this if you can.  It's such a powerful event to watch and such an encouragement for anyone who gets baptized to see as many people as possible there in support.

And finally, I want to encourage you about getting your high schooler(s) involved in RUSH on Wednesday nights at 6pm.  God has put this on our hearts to start to make sure that students aren't falling between the cracks, to see a true sense of community build amongst the high schoolers.  Ryan Palmer is a discipleship juggernaut and already has the staff pumped up to start small groups in February (read his post here).

Thank you again, as I always say, for giving myself and the next gen department here at PFB Church (FLOOD) the honor of partnering with you as you raise your students for Jesus.  We do not take it lightly.  God bless you all as you continue to love your kids for Jesus.
